San Lyon is a progressive gypsy swing trio based in Los Angeles and comprised of guitarist Dani Vargas, vocalist Paige Herschell, and violinist/vocalist Jenna Colombet. Like so many musical endeavors, their journey began on a wine-soaked evening at the home of their mutual friends, producer Johannes Raassina and singer-songwriter Luna Achiary, with the communal jam sessions echoing through the Hollywood Hills.
After confirming their musical compatibility in a more sober setting, the trio began playing tightly arranged standards at private events, house parties, and upscale eateries around Southern California.
Naturally, more original music began to flow, making substantial reference to the gypsy swing tradition, but expanding upon it with influences from blues, modern jazz, folk, and bossa nova, among others. San Lyon’s songs span the three native languages of its members, English, French, and Spanish.
EP “I” was released at July 27, order here.
